Hello every one been a while since I posted!!! Just to say before I explain my happiness! I am still looking for my three cats who went missing the day after boxing day last year. After my house was tragically broken into and they either ran off or (more likely) they were taken and sold. Today I had a call from a friend who said she'd found a mother and two kittens stray in the woods near her house they seemed to have been abandoned. She'd been going their feeding them for about a week, she'd called the authorities but no one seemed to take action! Hmm!! Anyway today my friend managed to catch one of the kittens! Only she couldn't keep her (as she has persians and one of those has a litter)! So she offered me her. I wasn't sure after all I am still loking for my other precious babies but me being me thought I'd go over and see her and well of course I ended up with her! We got home about an three hours a go. She's sitting on my knee but seems very unsure of herself. She's 8 weeks old (roughly she is tiny and sits in my hand)! Caspian is behaving civil and has gone into the other room to lye down after poke her a few times with his giant tom paws! I am a bit worried about her, earlier she was so terrified of everything she backed herself up in the corner of the kitchen right up agaisnt the wall. Ive never seen a cat do this and it feels so sad because Nefertiti really is a beautiful princess now! If any one has tips on shy cats that would be lovely to here! I won't be leaving her and the great Caspian a lone , after all , if I had been thrown out and made to live in nasty damp cold woods and brought to a nice house the last thing I'd want is a great big man jumping on me and syaing "lets play!" The way she is sitting is quite ridgid, some times she hisses at me witch is kinda funny as shes so tiny and cute. I don't want to give her any more stress though. Todays been a big day, leaving her mother and brother, going to a strange house with a strange woman and cat(s), leaving said house and woman to go to another strange woman and house and cat. I think shes just about had enough! By the way, I called her Nefertiti after the Queen of Egypt who was not born of royal blood. She is almost black apart from a tortie patch on her back and a tortie patch on her front. The lady is still trying to coax the mother and other kitten only they are larger and more aloof.
